Russell was gotten by the Warriors in a sign- and-trade with the Nets in July following Kevin Durant's departure to Brooklyn as a complimentary company.
As for Russell, he has landed with his fourth team in his fifth National Basketball Association season as the All-Star prepares to team up with friend Karl-Anthony Towns in Minnesota. By landing Russell, they now have an All-Star point guard who's currently averaging 23.6 points per game, a career high. He will join Karl-Anthony Towns, who was the top pick by the Timberwolves in that same draft.
BREAKING: Warriors Trade D'Angelo Russell To Minnesota For Andrew Wiggins
Two 2021 draft picks are also headed to San Francisco along with Wiggins.
The portion of the trade involving Iguodala was agreed on Wednesday night, as was the 2015 NBA Finals MVP agreeing to a two-year extension with Miami that will be formalized when the totality of the deal actually gets approved by the league.
Cathay Pacific asks staff to take unpaid leave over coronavirus
Earlier this week, Cathay announced it had cut services to mainland China and also on other worldwide routes. Tang warned Cathay of "one of the most hard Chinese New Year holidays we've ever had".
Soon after the Wiggins-Russell deal went down, the Wolves sent backup center Gorgui Dieng to Memphis as part of a seven-player, three-team trade also involving Miami.
So unless they trade Wiggins or Green, this might just be the team they have. And we didn't have Steph and Klay to play with him this year, so I don't think that we had a fair test. The 6-foot-7 Wiggins is in the second season of a five-year, $147 million deal. Golden State has used every excuse in the book to sit Draymond and sporadic DNPs are going to be par for the course as they tank their season away.

After being called on the carpet, the school administrator apologized in an email to parents, admitting that her post was "inappropriate and tasteless", and "a personal, visceral reaction" to Bryant's history.
In return, the Warriors claimed shooting guard and 2014 number one draft pick Wiggins to compliment All-Stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. The Warriors have been beset by key injuries and departures this year, leaving them with a 12-40 mark on the season.
While Golden State has enjoyed recent success at home against L.A., this season's Warriors and Lakers teams are far different from the ones that have met in recent years.
Knicks could follow Warriors, Lakers examples by hiring an agent as president
It remains to be seen whether or not Rose will be able to turn the Knicks' fortunes around although fans are pretty optimistic. Knicks owner James Dolan released a statement Thursday afternoon, but did not announce any hiring.
Myers, who said in July that Russell wasn't acquired just to be flipped later, noted that one of the key reasons to make the deal now was to get out of the luxury tax this season and allow for more financial flexibility in the future. In the meantime, we'll get to watch these other teams develop until the Warriors are ready to make their mark on the league yet again.
